Mentoring Program


A specific aim of the Farkhunda Trust (FT) scholarship students is to support our scholars to successfully complete their graduate degree with distinction through mentorship on a personal and academic level.  The mentorship will be undertaken in partnership with the universities involved to specifically address their academic needs. An important aspect of mentoring will focus on pastoral care to build their skills and confidence to successfully manage challenges arising from academic life and personal problems, as well as ensure appropriate support for any protection issues for young women arising in the academic environment or impacting on them from the public or family life.  It is FT aspiration that our scholars are enabled to play a full role in society on a political, social and economic development of Afghanistan, as future role models and leaders for other young women particularly on accessing higher education.

One year university education for a student costs:
£1,450 / $1,900 / €1,600 / AFN130,00 / AED7,000
